Sled Hockey

Sled hockey is an exciting disabled alternative team sport that follows rules similar to able-bodied hockey. Instead of using ice skates, players sit on a specially designed sled (sledge) equipped with two skate blades. Players use two short hockey sticks, not only for shooting and passing, but also for propelling themselves across the ice with the metal picks attached to the top of the shafts.

Legal body contact and raised puck shooting are as much a part of sled hockey as they are in traditional hockey. You can play recreationally, graduate to a competitive team, or hone your skills and go on to become a Sled Hockey Paralympian! Sled hockey season is September-March.

  • DASA Blues Team is the competitive travel team.
  • DASA B Team is the Adult Developing Team.
  • DASA Jr. Blues Team is a competitive travel team for kids.
  • The Skills and Drills Sled Hockey program is for Jr. and adult developing players.
